Please note we are strictly following the Governor's guidelines.  If your NY region is designated a "Red Zone" we are unable to take those attendees for in-house training.  Conversely, if WE become a "Red Zone" we will be unable to conduct in-house training.  Trainees from other states are allowed only if they are not on the travel ban list for New York state.

As part of the COVID-19 state and federal protocols, NYSWDA has developed a Safety Plan to ensure the safety of you and your staff.  Below are listed the measures being taken to secure the safety of your staff as well as ours.

Please read and follow NYSWDA Re-Opening Safety Protocols .  We are taking our re-opening very seriously.  These measures are for your safety as well as our staff. No exceptions to these protocols will be allowed!

In addition, all attendees will be required to complete a Student Screening Checklist prior to attending the class.

This training is for:
All those needing to renew their CURRENT EPA RRP Lead Renovator certification.  Those who have a lapsed certification must repeat the Initial training.

Course Description:
This half-day refresher course will enable current certified lead renovators to renew their certification for another five (5) year period.  This training is approximately 3.33 hours classroom and .66 hours hands-on lab work followed by a short written test.  EPA Lead Renovators may take this renewal class for their certification up to 6 months prior to their certification expiration date.  Upon successful completion, attendees will recieve a new Lead Renovator card from the training provider (NYSWDA).  The EPA requires all contractors that work in pre-1978 housing to have this certification. 

HCR requires that sub-grantees must have at least one Lead Renovator per crew present each day.  HCR suggests that agencies employ more than one Lead Renovator per crew to ensure that a certified individual is present every day a pre-1978 house is being weatherized.

Must have completed the EPA RRP Lead Renovator training and hold a current certification.  If your certification has expired, you will need to take the full class again.
